Description

Three-arch road bridge over river, extant 1840. Creeper- or ivy-covered coursed rubble stone walls centred on triangular cutwaters to piers to upriver (north) elevation having shallow pyramidal capping with lichen-spotted rubble stone soldier course coping to parapets. Pair of round arches centred on single segmental arch with lichen-spotted voussoirs. Sited spanning Duncormick River with unkempt banks to river.

Appraisal

A bridge representing an integral component of the eighteenth-century civil engineering heritage of south County Wexford: meanwhile, a much weathered benchmark remains of additional interest for the connections with cartography and the preparation of maps by the Ordnance Survey (established 1824).
